Christopher Webster [Celluloid 05.14.14] horror



Fans of the grizzly found footage anthology series will be excited to know there is a third film on the way. I finally caught up with VHS 2 on Netflix and I'm not sure I agree with most reviewers that it trumps the first one by a landslide. I think, like the first film, there a couple of standout segments and a couple of duds. The second definitely relies less on the antics of douchbags, which helps, but both films are equally uneven I'd say. Likely an unavoidable outcome of the anthology nature of it.

This trailer for the third looks like it stays the course. I really like the series despite its flaws, so I'm glad to see it picked up by Epic.


Synopsis:
Fame-obsessed teens hell-bent on capturing the next viral video discover they are the stars of the latest internet sensation. V/H/S VIRAL is the third and most intense installment in the groundbreaking horror franchise from the world's top genre filmmakers.

Directed by: MARCEL SARMIENTO (Dead Girl), GREGG BISHOP (Dance of the Dead), NACHO VIGALONDO (Timecrimes), JUSTIN BENSON & AARON MOORHEAD (Resolution), TODD LINCOLN (The Apparition)

Epic didn't pick it up. They are the sales company.

I have to admit I liked VHS one and two. I don't mind the found footage format. I'll be looking for this one.
